We have scoured the seven kingdoms to bring you our 10 favourite crazy event games you can incorporate into your next fundraising event! And the countdown is….. *drumroll*
Event Game 10: Separation Anxiety
You have one minute, with one hand behind your back, to sort as many colours as possible!
Event Game 9: Oreo Game
There is absolutely no way to look elegant when playing the Oreo game! You have to get the Oreo from your forehead into your mouth with no hands! First to finish is the winner!
Event Game 8: Human Caterpillar
You’ll need large lengths of sturdy plastic or fabric for this one! The ends will need to be sewn together and then you need to work in teams to be the first to the finish line!
Event Game 7: Flip Tac Toe
This one is simple to organise but I can imagine it would be pretty funny! There are a few different ways this can be played too – watch the video to find out!
Event Game 6: Balloon Race
This one speaks for itself – you need to get to the other end first without dropping any of the balloons and without using your hands!
Event Game 5: Anything with a Tarp and Detergent
It can be absolutely any challenge, but if you have an outdoor event and a slippy slide laced with detergent, you’re sure to get a laugh no matter what!
Event Game 4: Straw Pick Up Game
This could also be done as a relay if everyone had their own straw. First person or team to collect all of their coloured squares wins!
Event Game 3: Stocking on Head/ Water Bottle Game
I love this one! It is a very portable game so can be easily set up anywhere. Wear a stocking on your head with a tennis ball on the end, and race to knock the water bottle over first!
Event Game 2: Pillow Fight Tournament
This is a serious sport in Japan! Blankets are shields and the pillow are your weapons. Learn the rules or just make it up as you go along!!
Event Game 1: Human Hungry Hungry Hippo
Skateboards, laundry baskets, lots of balls (plus I would suggest helmets!!!) and you have a hilarious game for your next fundraising event!
